Lando Vannata getting easy fight to pad his stats

Discussion in 'UFC Discussion' started by The Great Macsby, Dec 28, 2016.

  1. UFC 209: Vannata vs. Teymur

    The UFC is protecting Lando and making sure he pads his stats some more. Getting that Doh ho Choi treatment early days. Vannata is a stand up fighter and they are giving him an ultimate fighter failure that likes to stand and trade.

    I remember once upon a time up and coming fighters were tested against solid competition like actual TUF winners.

    Lando is an amazing fighter but Teymur is a prospect in his own right.

    Ferguson and Makdesi aren't easy fights.

    It's a fighter build up eliminatation fight.
    Teymur could easily win this with a good plan and tactics.

    Acting like Teymur is a gimme fight isn't very accurate ts. Teymur is far from a failure.

    Remember when Ferguson got a fight to pad his stats?
     
  7. one thread = threatened?

    I just like fighters to be given equal treatment. Rory had to fight Condit early days. Lando gets given 2 easy fights in a row. This is the UFC, the competition should be better than that.

    I expect better.

    LW is one of the deepest divisions to ever exist in the UFC. Just 'cause the man took a tough short notice fight, and then a boner inducing ko doesn't mean you have to immediately throw him into the top 10.

    If he stays active he could very well bounce into the top 10, maybe top 5 next year if he continues to be amazing.

    Well then you are as deluded as I thought. Besides, John Makdessi isn't a gimme and Teymur is a good prospect himself.

  15. You mean the meaningless fight Conor took after he had secured a title shot. The same fighter who was ranked #10. The same fighter that cost George sot his title shot in similar circumstances.

    Completely the same...

    This is about Lando, not Conor.

    Lol Vannata is 1-1 in the UFC, he doesn't deserve anyone ranked.

  19. No bait.

    He's a rising star that should face the appropriate competition. He should be fighting fighters of the calibre of:

    - Jake Matthews
    - Erik Koch
    - Chad Laprise
    - Joe Duffy
